If you sometimes have Scandianvian languages interferences, please state which ones you have and maybe why you have them.

I still tend to use some Danish pronounciation and some Danish words in Norwegian, because I have several more years of study experience with Danish than with Norwegian.

There is Bokmål influence in all my other Scandinavian languages. The reason is probably
that I learned them as a modified version of Bokmål. Everything I haven't come across
will need Bokmål as a fallback.
But I also have Swedish interference in Norwegian. There are things I find more elegant
to express in Swedish and have a hard time finding an equivalent term in Norwegian ... at
least not on the spot (eg. "Det lär ...").

I frequently catch myself using Danish vocabulary and constructions in Swedish, simply due to have far more experience with the former. Just yesterday I found myself trying to construct a future form in Swedish with "ville", and noticed that it seemed odd for some reason. Hmm, could it be that "vilja" is correct here? No, that's definitely the infinitive, which I'm quite sure is (unlike Danish) distinct from the past tense here. Why, then, does "ville" feel wrong here? Hmm...

It then occurred to me "ville" felt wrong there because "vilja" isn't used as a future auxiliary in Swedish, but rather just in Danish.

Using Swedish forms instead of Danish is much rarer for my, but I've caught myself doing it in writing on rare occasion ("mer" instead of "mere" plus an instance of a double infinitive in a a text I wrote recently) in periods where I've been studying Swedish more heavily. I don't think I've ever had interference in speech in that direction, though.

While I read and hear Norwegian regularly in my classes, I don't really study or use it actively, so I've yet to have any opportunity for confusion. I'm sure it would likely get interference from both Danish and Swedish if I did, though.

Sometimes, when an Icelandic verb is written like the Swedish (e.g. "tala"), I find myself pronouncing it with the Swedish pitch accent. Then I punch myself. Early on in my Icelandic studies I noticed myself writing "hún" as "hon" (but bizarrely enough not as "hun"). Fortunately I seem to have dropped that habit fairly quickly. That sort of thing just shouldn't be allowed.
